Yogurt Marinated Chicken Kebabs
This is my go to Mediterranean chicken marinade. It's perfect for kebabs on the grill, or you could use it for a whole chicken breast and slice it up for a Greek salad or wrap. Serve with all the trimmings like pita, roasted veggies, orzo or rice, tzatziki and hummus.
The yogurt breaks down the chicken so beautifully and makes it super tender. And my hidden secret ingredient gives it to much flavor and makes it even more tender if it's possible.
This will be on rotation in your house for your family no question from now on.
Feeds 4 people
1 cup Greek yogurt
4 cloves garlic, crushed
Zest and juice of one lemon
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp sumac
3 tbsp juice from a pepperoncini jar (SECRET INGREDIENT)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
4 organic chicken breast cut in to cubes or kept whole depending on what you are using it for
1 tbsp olive oil
This couldn't be simpler, mix together all the marinade ingredients.
Wash, Pat dry and cut your chicken in to cubes or you can keep it whole and grill the breasts whole and then slice for a salad.
If doing kebabs, you can use metal or wooden skewers. I like to use short ones and make 2-3 skewers per person.
If using wooden skewers, soak them in warm water first before adding on your chicken so they don't catch on fire on the grill.
Once you have mixed your marinade, add in your chicken and combine.
Pop it in to the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour before cooking.
Once it's time to cook, you can either grill them on a medium heat. Spray some olive oil or avocado oil spray first and place directly on to the hot grill for 5-6 minutes per side.
If you don't have a grill or if it's rainy outside, you can pan sear them on a cast iron skillet pan on each side for 2 minutes until browned, with a little olive oil and then put them in to a preheated oven at 400 F to finish cooking until internal temperature reads 165 F.
You could also grill some fresh lemon cut in half and then squeeze it over at the end.
Enjoy this deeee-licious chicken recipe time and time again!
